You ladies know I am a self-proclaimed Lipstick whore ;) But every now and again I do slip over to the glossier side of proceedings. I am sure it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the colleague that I sit opposite at work is constantly topping up her gloss (what can I say, I am easily influenced), but this past few weeks have seen a lipgloss be thrown into the depths of my makeup bag. My favs?
Revlon, NARS, Clinique
Yep and they are all pinky nudes! Well what did you expect ;) The first one is by Revlon and is one that I got over a year ago now and by the laws of lipglosses should smell as skanky as the bottom of your shoe – however 16 months later and it’s still going strong! It’s their Super Lusturous formula in the shade Pink Pop and gives my lips a hint of rosey glow, which actually makes a nice change for once. The second one is from NARS – the king of lipglosses – in their infamous shade Turkish Delight (link). It’s supposedly soon to be divorcée (oh I do love a bit of gossip), Kim Kardashian’s favourite shade! Now yes, compared to the pleasant smelling Revlon offering, this does have a distinctive pong about it but the colour is a beaut. A muted down baby pink that is great for layering or wearing on it’s own. My final favourite is from Clinique and was a freebie in Glamour a few months back now. It’s their Superbalm Moisturising Gloss in the shade Raspberry (link). Now I can’t say it’s as moisturising as my HG gloss, Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in 02, but – I do love the colour of this for the upcoming winter months. 
Right I’m off to go slather some gloss on ;) There are quite a few lip products that I have been loving at the moment, so keep an eye out for reviews of those on my blog! I am thinking of doing a FAQ post soon so let me know if you have any questions bottled up and I will pop up a post soon where you can submit any questions you have :) Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
Much Love,
Vivianna x

    Ah, so I’m not the only one to find that NARS lipglosses kind of stink! I’ve tried both the lip gloss and the lip lacquer pots from NARS and I”ve found that they ‘turn’ quite quickly. Shame…. the Turkish Delight one looks tempting.

    Absolutely love your blog by the way and congrats on winning at the Cosmo awards!

      No the NARS one smells awful, but the colour is great! And thank you :) xx

    I’m more into gloss than lipstick, purely because my lips are so dry, that on me, glosses just look better. These are 3 gooorgeous shades! xx

    i love revlon pink pop too :) i havent gotten any nars lipgloss…only because of the price point and, like you mentioned, the smell! i really love the texture of their glosses and colors so i think eventually i will still end up getting a few shades (like striptease!)

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oh yes I have always liked the look of striptease too :) xx

    NARS Turkish Delight is one of my favorites! I’ve heard really good things about their super orgasm shade too! 

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oh yes, I have never tried that shade before! x

  • lauren alice

    In blind panic last night I found myself running into Selfridges to pick up Turkish Delight after you said it might be discontinued! The assistant assured me they would “never do such a thing” but I hastily bought two just in case… Madness!!!

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Haha no they would never discontinue that shade! xx

  • Nikolina(:

    I really love lipsticks but sometimes I tend to go lipgloss mad for a change! I’ve never tried NARS lipsglosses before since most of the reviews online go on and on about their horrible smell but I might try one someday! Great post(:

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oh yes, horrid smell but lovely glosses xx

  • Anna Elisabeth Vaher

    Lancome Color Fever is great! Really creamy, yet shiny and not sticky at all. :)

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oh thanks for the recommendation xx

  • Kaleighwilliams

    I would say that i am definatly a lipstick girl, but I am in love with Benefits Ultra Shine in ‘Spiked Punch’ really beautiful colour and doesn’t have that nasty sticky gunky feeling most have.

    I have a new blog which will be updated with reviews very soon…

    I always feel that Turkish Delight is to pale on me, and washes me out. =[

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Maybe try it over a lipstick? xx

  • Joely Marsh

    Turkish Delight is my absolute favourite lipgloss! It looks gorgeous over Creme D’Nude or Shy Girl :) The Revlon one looks gorgeous too, but they don’t sell it in my local Boots :(

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oh no, if you can ever find the Revlon one I highly recommend it! xx
